Improve circulation throughout the showroom
Void Interior Furnishings opened its doors to the public in 1999. CORE Architects were brought on board to improve circulation throughout the showroom.
One vantage point
The showroom suffered from being comprised of three main rooms and a mezzanine with no relation to each other. As part of the circulation improvements, CORE’s retail team led by Partner Gabriela Estrada relocated access from the upper mezzanine to the front of the store with a new walnut stair to give customers a visual cue into three areas of the showroom from one vantage point.
To match the finish of the new staircase, a walnut laminated floor replaced the painted concrete floor. New handrails of clear and etched glass with stainless were added.
